This getaway house Nashville review is in collaboration with Getaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Have you heard of Getaway House? Getaway House is a network of tiny cabins nestled in the heart of nature. They have locations all over the country and last weekend I was invited to the one-year anniversary of their Nashville outpost in Dale Hollow. I’m going to share a little more about Getaway House and what to do at their Nashville location!
Getaway House Nashville Review
Getaway House is a tiny cabin that is just big enough for two people. Each cabin has a queen-sized bed or queen bunk, mini-fridge, radio, hot shower, toilet, sink with drinking water, a two-burner stove, and AC/Heat. One thing that you won’t find at Getaway House is WiFi and a TV. In fact, the idea is to lock up your cell phone and not check it the entire weekend. We didn’t even have service where we were!
The Nashville Dale Hollow Outpost
Getaway House is about a two-hour drive from Nashville in Celina, TN. The closest store nearby was Dollar General. You can either grab a few items there or bring them with you. You can either cook your food in the cabin or out over the fire. Tim made a delicious meal on the stove that was divine!
We also brought our two black lab mixes, Gatsby and Fitzy with us. With dogs, you have to let them know when you book your reservation. You also can’t leave them in the cabin unattended and when out have to be on a leash at all times. Luckily there were multiple hiking trails around our cabin so the girls were good and tired.
After dinner, head outside to the campfire! Getaway House has firewood for sale in addition to s’mores ingredients if you forgot them. Out there we looked at the stars, talked, and sipped wine while we enjoyed each other’s company. All fires are out by 10 p.m. so we got ready for bed and read a book until we fell asleep.
Some other things you can do to unplug and meditate, do a puzzle, play a board game, tell ghost stories around the fire, or just soak in nature.
When we woke up, we made coffee, opened the shades, and enjoyed our morning caffeine from bed. Then we made breakfast and spent the rest of our time outside. Check-out is at 11 a.m. so we took the girls for a quick walk and headed back to Nashville.
